Ewald Fleet Solutions works with you to implement a vehicle life cycling strategy that will put you in control over your operating costs. Operating a vehicle without a life cycle plan, or in other words, “running it until the wheels fall off”, is like flying blind. No matter the type of vehicle in your fleet, we'll work with you to find the best time to cycle your vehicle.
Your vehicle’s life cycle is best determined individually and is vehicle specific, factoring in its annual miles, usage, make, model, and time of the year for resale. Any underlying maintenance costs and upfitted features can also influence the value of the vehicle. Aligning the life cycle plan around this time frame will maximize resale value and lower your overall operating expense.
Optimal Vehicle Life Cycling Point
An optimal life cycling point occurs when the vehicle is at the lowest cost of ownership. Operating a vehicle beyond the optimal cycling point can expose you to uncertainty in resale value, unforeseen maintenance and subsequent downtime. Read more about optimal cycling here.
